Sample letters to help you communicate with your school team

We know that communicating with the many professionals and administrators who oversee your child’s education isn’t always easy! Our team whipped up some sample letters for you to reference throughout your child’s IEP journey. These letters can help you create documentation for your child’s records, request meetings and evaluations, and communicate with the higher-ups to ensure that your child’s rights are protected at school.

Follow each link to find the sample letter in an article with tips and advice on the topic.

  • Request an initial assessment for an IEP: If you believe that your child would benefit from special education services, write to the principal of the school to request a comprehensive evaluation for an Individualized Education Program (IEP).

  • Request an IEE: If you disagree with the school’s assessments, you can request an independent educational evaluation (IEE) to be paid for by the school district.

  • Request a specific evaluation for your child: If you have a specific area of concern, such as AAC, you can write a brief letter to the school’s special education specialist or therapist requesting an evaluation or assessment.

  • Request an IEP meeting: You can request an IEP meeting to be held outside of regularly scheduled annual/triennial IEP meetings at any time.

  • Request service logs: Progress monitoring is important to see how your child is working toward their goals and to make sure they’re receiving services as outlined in the IEP. You can write a brief letter to request records of time spent with therapists and logs of other services.

  • Communicate about discrimination/bullying: If your child is being discriminated against or bullied and their teacher hasn’t taken action, write a letter to the district superintendent, principal, and/or school board members. This sample letter advises you to outline the other students’ behavior, any action taken by the teacher, and the school authorities’ responsibility under the law to protect your child. You can also include in the letter your suggestions for a solution.

  • Document how you agree/disagree with the IEP: If you agree to parts of your IEP but disagree with other parts, you can include a letter spelling out your specific points of agreement/disagreement. You can also use this letter to request another meeting with your IEP team and propose solutions to where your current IEP falls short.

  • Document a phone conversation: Documentation helps support your claims if you disagree with your IEP team about whether the IEP is being implemented. If you discuss these matters over the phone, sending a follow-up letter or email can make sure your concerns are recorded.

  • Opt out of statewide assessments: You have the right to request that your child not participate in statewide assessments.
